Pen & Wash (19 & 20 May)

Registration fee: $250.00

Pen and Wash with Lizzie Connor

Pen and wash is a fresh and fun way of combining some watercolour technique with your drawing skills.  A wash is a term for a  technique resulting in a semi-transparent layer of color. A wash of diluted   water colour paint applied in combination with drawing is called pen and wash.   Normally only one or two colours of wash are used. This workshop will explore creating a number of different pen sketches using a range of different tonal areas created by making lots of different lines and marks,  and then overlaying lightly coloured wash or washes over selected areas of the drawing to emphasise focal points in the drawing.  Drawing materials to be played with will be felt tips, biros, and Indian Ink. If students are not so keen on drawing, or not confident this could be a great way to up your skills with drawing.  Pen and wash is a lovely free way of working, where the brush work is soft and loose, as is the pen work, but the pen work also is the element that holds the images together and gives them strength.

Saturday and Sunday, 19 and 20 May, 9:30am – 4:00pm, $250 for 2 days.
